All art is propaganda

All art is propaganda, and ever must be, despite the wailing of the purists. I stand in utter shamelessness and say that whatever art I have for writing has been used always for propaganda for gaining the right of black folk to love and enjoy. I do not care a damn for any art that is not used for propaganda.

W. E. B. Du Bois

  1. Agree, though my propaganda (subtly hidden in entertaining fiction, I hope) is for the rights of the disabled and chronically ill not to be trampled on because they scare society.

    And worse, that they themselves buy into it.

    Humanity, and access to the ability to love and reach for the stars, is for everyone.
